My friend Derby calls Piccolo's "the best Italian food in Worcester County". If my dinner there is any indication, he's right on the mark. Very attentive service. The veal parmesan and the pasta sauce were the best I've had in memory. I had the least expensive Chianti on the menu, and it was very enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Went for our wedding anniversary. It wasn't too crowded, but my husband and I could barely carry on a conversation because of the noise. Our waitress was less than helpful and difficult to track down. When served our requested bottle of wine, our waitress just poured a bit to taste and then filled my glass and nearly slammed the bottle... More

This was my third or fourth visit and the last time was two or three years back. The atmosphere is great. The server was a pain and we felt rushed even though it was early and not busy. The bread was stale. We ordered an appetizer special of fried oysters which was the best thing I tasted. My husband had... More

Lively atmosphere and friendly staff. Three of us shared a large salad (house special) for appertizer. Entrees were all served hot, plentyful and well seasoned. On street parking was difficult on a busy Saturday night which made us a liitle late, but our server got us out in time for the show. Good value.

We drive 3000 miles across country twice a year. We plan the trips around staying in Worcester just so we can enjoy dinner at Piccolo's. They never fail us. This time the sirloin cannelloni was superb! S Brewer

I told the waitress and she offered to have the kitchen remake it. I declined saying I would just eat the pasta on the dish. (you... More

Went here for the first time during Restaurent Week 2013 on a Tuesday night. It was one of the best meals that I have had in a very long time. The food was extremely flavorful and fresh. The service was great and I had a really good experience. Highly recommended.

My mother and I were staying in Auburn so we decided to try out this place. Parking seemed to only be on the street, people were sitting right outside the door smoking and drinking, so it wasn't all that quiet to start with. the hotel we were staying at said we could leave our dogs in the room, but before...
